The Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti and Joe Simonson published an intrepid piece of reporting early Friday morning exposing CNN’s fishy hiring of former James Comey flack and 10-year-agent Josh Campbell as its latest “law enforcement analyst” to defend the FBI from Republican criticism. Citing a source, the pair reported that “Comey had a direct hand in securing [Campbell’s] CNN position in return for an exclusive interview.”
ABC, NBC and CBS all ignored a bombshell report released by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee overnight, which revealed more critical evidence concerning how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton e-mail probe. The Committee also released more damning text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page which showed an intention by the agents to find evidence to impeach President Trump as well as the news that President Obama wanted to be involved in the Clinton email investigation.
On Monday afternoon, CNN political commentator and liberal Republican Ana Navarro ghoulishly paraphrased a quote by World War II-era pastor Martin Niemöller to equate embattled current and former Justice Department officials to those murdered by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis (aka President Trump) during the Holocaust.
On Friday, the College of William & Mary announced that former FBI Director James Comey, a 1982 graduate, will "will teach a three-credit course on ethical leadership" beginning this fall. Establishment press coverage of Comey's assignment, coinciding with being named "an executive professor in education," has mostly avoided the myriad reasons why having him teach such a course is a horrible lapse in judgment by W&M.
On Tuesday, President Trump tweeted he would be “announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” on Monday “in various categories from the Fake News Media." There’s bias, but then there’s sheer incompetence. The biggest media obsession last year was the search for evidence of Trump’s supposed collusion with Russia, in the process, liberal reporters in 2017 repeatedly stumbled into error and were forced to make embarrassing corrections. This post presented eight possible choices that the President could consider.
In an unbylined 11:31 a.m. Eastern Time dispatch Saturday, the Associated Press demonstrated why anyone trying to get to the truth about the status of the Hillary Clinton's private server-scandal — which is clearly not over, and clearly has not been "litigated a million times," as CNN's desperate Don Lemon claimed on Thursday in shouting down a conservative panelist — needs to go somewhere else to find it.
In a Thursday interview with Wolf Blitzer, Democrat Adam Schiff inanely wondered why only anti-Donald Trump texts and no anti-Hillary Clinton texts from Robert Mueller's partisan Democrat-dominated investigative team have been presented to Congress. Naturally, Schiff engaged in this pathetic misdirection on CNN, where he was confident he wouldn't be challenged — and he wasn't.
In case you were wondering, journalists are already excited over what ex-FBI Director James Comey will say in his upcoming memoir. Though it won’t be out until May of 2018, the co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Thursday gushed over the release... of the title. Co-host Norah O’Donnell enthused, “Something tells me that's going to be a good book!”
Perhaps it was an apology for giving Hillary Clinton a tough interview last week, but NPR decided to make it up to her this week, with a long-winded gushy, self-flagellating interview by Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, that let Clinton lay all the blame for losing the election on every one of her dozens of excuses, including the media.
In a pre-recorded interview aired on Friday's PBS NewsHour, PBS host Judy Woodruff asked guest Hillary Clinton if she believes President Donald Trump is "racist," and then did not challenge her when she claimed that Trump had "accepted the support of David Duke," and that he "has not condemned the neo-Nazis and the self-proclaimed white supremacists." Substitute host Hari Sreenivasan also teased that, in part two of the interview to be aired next week, Clinton had blamed "well-executed voter suppression of African-American voters" for her loss in Wisconsin.
Conclusion first, facts second. That, allegedly, was the mentality of ex-FBI Director James Comey in dealing with Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal. Yet this revelation was ignored by ABC, CBS and NBC on Thursday and Friday. Comey, who was fired by Donald Trump in May, decided in 2016 against criminal charges of Hillary Clinton before 17 interviews of witnesses were complete.
On the Russia-Trump imbroglio, let us be clear. We are now months into it. A dozen or so culprits have been fingered, some being actually quite amusing. You will be seeing more of the fat British music promoter Rob Goldstone, who has been photographed wearing a baseball hat emblazoned with the letters "C*NTY." He is too good to be ignored.
